As a stylist, I am constantly putting together shopping lists for my clients in order to identify the pieces that their wardrobes and thus, their lifestyles, would most benefit from. While every list is customized to the individual, there are common threads that run through them all.
When it comes to summer footwear, here are the 6 styles that prove relevant again and again, year in and year out, for the widest range of people and situations.
The T-Strap Sandal
This flat sandal can be dressed up or down and is flattering to the foot.
The Platform Wedge Sandal
Best done in a mid-tone to pale brown or a natural canvas with a woven or cork base, this is the comfortable way to wear heels in the summer.
The Canvas Sneaker
If you have some walking to do or you are wearing a sporty outfit, a classic canvas sneaker in a neutral color always makes sense.
The Heeled Dress Sandal
Because summer weddings and other seasonal celebrations are inevitable, keep a heeled dress sandal in black or nude-for-you on hand.
The Leather Slide
Whether in the form of a flip-flop, a preppy Jack Roger or the season’s it-sandal, the Birkenstock, a leather slide will serve you well.
As either a flat or a heel, the peep-toe is an elegant and lady-like way to show off your pedicure.
Of course there are many other styles of summer footwear that can make stylish and useful additions to a modern wardrobe – the espadrille, the d’orsay sandal, heel or flat, the gladiator or cage sandal and even the huarache – but the 6 above, in my humble opinion, are the most versatile and universal. So, take a minute to evaluate your closet and determine what, if any, you are missing. I promise that your wardrobe will thank you!

Americans love people with lots of spirit – individuals who are willing to push boundaries – in the best sense of the word. And, Meghan Markle, Duchess of Sussex, has done this with her flair for fashions that really work. This is why we love her.
After reading about Dolce & Gabbana’s new shop at 155 Mercer Street in Manhattan’s SoHo, I decided to pay a visit to see these digs for myself. On Friday, August 17th when it was close to 90 degrees F. I took the Downtown #6 subway and got off at Spring Street (a 10-minute trip). This left me at Spring/Lafayette and from there I walked west to Mercer where I crossed the street and took a short walk to 155 – all told a fairly easy jaunt.
There is something fun about watching the designer's vision on the runway. Yes, not all of the looks are practical, but it helps to bring what once were drawings and ideas to life. That part of the creative process is interesting to me. When it comes to street style, I have grown to appreciate this fashion scene.
We use Italian lingerie sizing for our bodywear and items tend to run small.
Because of the body-hugging nature of the fabric and our body conscious fit most women prefer to wear our layering tops as under-layers. If you are inclined to wear them on their own we suggest you size up. Please email us or give us a call if you have questions about your sizing. We're happy to help you get it right.
Relaxed fit. Wear alone or over any of our layering tees or camisoles.
